Angela Oertel Shelton, age 51 of Farmville, passed away on Thursday, September 22, 2016. She was born to the late Walker Davis “Rocky” Shelton, Jr. and Theresa Oertel Shelton on December 30, 1964.
Angela attended Cumberland Elementary and High Schools, before attending Central Virginia Community College where she received her Associate of Arts and Sciences degree that led to her first professional position with the Private Industry Council and the local Workforce Development Office. Angela loved her Lord and loved serving her Lord especially through her passion for Emmaus and their ministries. She loved people and was always available to her friends and family, but also strangers. Angela is truly, “One of the Five People You Meet in Heaven”! Chances are that Angela has touched your life in one way or another.
Angela loved animals and she was always surrounded by her pets. She also carried on her Daddy’s love of birds both wild and those fortunate enough to find a home in one of her bird houses. Angela cornered the market on coloring books and crayons! And she had a captive audience in her nieces and nephew. No one did it better! Angela had the make and model numbers of every crayon in a Crayola box and she taught the "art of crayola coloring" to my children....what a gift that was!
Angela is survived by a brother, Leslie Wayne Shelton, a sister, Pamela Shelton Herrmann (John) and three nieces and nephew; Kayla Dawn Herrmann, Jennifer Lauren Herrmann and Scott Mardyth Herrmann.
